The bigger issue, though, is systemd's influence over other projects. But that wasn't raised, so why would he comment?

Oh, it was asked, but my question about Red Hats' (and their one employees') increasingly out-sized dominance even over desktop apps wasn't deemed worthy, much to all our detriment.

Essentially Cisco did this shit on purpose, and you can bet at least some people knew damned well this was there.

Never attribute activity to nefarious government agencies to what can be more easily explained by clueless MBA PHBs demanding their own personal screendoor.

Yes, there is adware and exploitive free to play games, but you can uninstall them and they're gone.

I can't (and never will) speak for iOS, but on Android, when you hit the back button one too many times (overshooting the app main page), boom: full-screen scummy ad.

Please tell us how to 'uninstall' that behavior.

Even for Scalia - who has a reputation of holding no punches - this is intriguing stuff in his dissent (which is nearly as long as the verdict itself - pages 27 to 47 of 47 total are all his)

I assume one page of the others was written by Thomas and merely states: "Yeah, what HE said!" What a joke of a Justice.

But if you take a little time and look around, VERY good food choices can be had. And there is really NO excuse for only having bad foods at home. Ever heard of cooking? (and no, I don't mean popping something pre-made/frozen in the fucking microwave).

Absolutely! All that is required of you is TIME AND MONEY.

The majority of Americans' waistlines is tied innately to the fact they're being worked longer and longer for less and less buying power. This means they don't have the TIME to prep / cook relatively short-shelf life healthy food that also would cost them too much MONEY, therefore cheap, fast, preprocessed food IS THEIR ONLY CHOICE. Treble the impact in urban settings.

But, yes; sit along side Oprah and Gwenyth Paltrow, cluck your tongue, pat us on the head, and tell us again how simple the solution is, six-figure. /s
